I am not a stranger to trying different products to improve the look and texture of my skin. This product is pricey but I went for it and am glad that I did. I am close to 70 yrs and can hardly believe the results that I got within a week.. I have very light skin and have never been able to tan but of course over the years have gotten some sun damage. Tried a few other products but did not have good results. This product feels good on my face; has brightened the skin especially under my eyes to the point where I don't have to wear make up everyday. I will buy this product again.

Love the product, within 2 weeks of using I was receiving compliments but I have a hard time with the odor and a little stickiness
Great Protection and Correction
Posted 8/25/2013 by Stefanie
This is absolutely the best antioxidant serum I have ever used, and I have tried a lot of them. Does it smell like fireworks/bacon? Yes. Can it make you shiny? Yes. (But it is more of a glassy shine than an oily sheen.) But it more than makes up for these minor issues by being unbelievably effective at providing protection, radiance, and firmness. When I ran out of CE Ferulic and didn't use it for a few weeks I could definitely see a difference, and when I started using it again, I had immediate improvement and even strangers commented on how great my skin looked. I wish it wasn't so expensive, but it's one of those products that is absolutely worth the price.

I'm a 48-year-old female with combination skin, and since I started using Skinceuticals' C E Ferulic, I've gotten many compliments about my skin. It feels tighter and glows. I don't appreciate the fact, though, that Skincare Rx sends emails with pictures of C E Ferulic on it, saying '20% off!' only to discover upon checkout that the picture of C E Ferulic was only a tease. Please be honest and transparent - show us pictures of products that are valid for discount. Respect your customers. (Thanks!)

I have sensitive skin prone to hormonal breakouts. I started using skinceuticals age and blemish serum in the morning after my toner and their retinal 0.5 at night. I also have hyperpigmentation and I want to use this product. Do I stop using the blemish stuff or the retinol?
Posted 9/25/2012 by Anonymous
OMG! After years of trying so many product that did not work, I finally found this product which I saw results the next day. I have suffered from hyperpigmentation all my life and this product is working and no break outs. Yeah!

Do not leave it sitting on the counter exposed to daylight; keep it in a drawer. Do not keep the top of the bottle off for any length of time because air oxidizes it as well. This product smells like liquid hot dogs, but the smell dissipates because you apply other products over it like moisturizer and sunblock, after waiting 5 minutes. This is mainly a preventative treatment. It's a boost to your sunblock and protects your skin better than sunblock alone. It also neutralizes free radicals to prevent further pigmentation. I do like this product a lot and highly recommend it. I just wish it was packaged in an airless pump bottle.
Mother's Day Gift

I would love to give this product to my mother for Mother's Day. It is a great product for older women
Expensive but Indispensible
Posted 8/24/2011 by HACLA
Don't let the price point throw you off. I have been a Retin A (Zianna) user for years coupled with hydroquinone at night. Because I am diligent the brown spots I have are not very noticeable with or without makeup. But I notice them. I have used a myriad of 'antioxidant' products, moisturizers, serums, etc. This stuff is amazing - and the results are obvious. It did not sting or bother my skin in the least but I have noticed a distinct improvement in the texture and discoloration. I put it on in the morning after I wash my face. I've been using it through sample sizes for a month and I just plunked down the $150 for it yesterday. Happily. Give it a try. You won't be sorry.

great product and nice smell. I used to hate the smell but now i even kind of like it. the product is great. definitely makes the skin eventoned and furthermore it also strengthens the skin i believe. also good for acne i think. it made my hand ( the one i spoil it) a yellow to brownish color)
It does have an odd smell - but it works!
Posted 6/26/2011 by AlainaD
I do agree that this product has a smell when you initially put it on, but it does dissipate. Unfortunately, later in the day, it starts to smell funny again. It DOES work, and works well, so the smell is something I just deal with.
Tied for the best Vitamin C on the market
Posted 3/13/2011 by LS
I have tried them all...this and the Vivier CE Kinerol (which unfortunately skincarerx does not sell, but hopefully will in the future!) are the best. Both really brighten and make a noticeable difference in the appearance of your skin--including fine lines. This has ferulic acid, which gives it an edge over Vivier. Very gentle--does not sting upon application--something I have noticed can happen with other C products. An expensive, but worthwhile investment if you want healthier looking skin. This is one product I cannot go without.
Posted 2/24/2011 by s
the comments smelling like bacon and hot dogs are hilarious-- but this product is great. i have really problem skin with some older scarring. i don't feel like this product or any from skin ceuticals is going to make any drastic difference on older problems (you may want to use something more aggressive first, either product or peels from a doctor), but bar none this stuff is worth every penny at hydrating and balancing the skin. your skin will be at it's health potential after using any of these products. i have used alpha aha, ce feurlic, photo , the sunblock... all great.

After using CEF for at least three bottles, I think I am qualified to write a review. I have oily skin and breakout sometimes. I use this product every morning after toner, and wait few minutes to apply lotion and sunscreen. Compared to other Vitamin C product I have used, this one does not clog my pore or make me breakout. My skin looks eventoned much better and light wrinkles become invisible.Greatly recommend to everybody.
Posted 1/31/2011 by Judy
Been using this product for 8 years or so & orginally ordered from a plastic surgeon in Stockton, CA. Recently started ordering from 'SkinCareRx' with better pricing & shipping. This is a must have for anyone wanting to look younger & fresher..... I use daily...without a miss...& love it (There is surely NO smell to this wonderful product)
I Love this Serum!!
Posted 1/19/2011 by Christine C
This has NEVER been smelly for me. I get a lot of compliments of how good my skin looks and how young I look. For those reasons I will keep using this serum. I love the way it goes on, I feel it is absorbed very quickly. I've used this for at least 4 years.
Posted 12/20/2010 by Sarah
I immediately started seeing results with this product! The most noticeable change was my pore size. I bought this product because my face was starting to look dull and my pores looked huge every time I put on my makeup. Sure, it's expensive, but it lasts a long time and is worth every penny.....As for the smell, it is not bad at all! Like the comment below, it smells like coffee beans...
Great, but smelly!
Posted 11/23/2010 by Jennifer A
Yes this product does have an interesting smell.... like burnt coffee beans? BUT after just one week of use my skin looks great, my husband noticed instantly! My skin is healthier, my pores are much better looking and my face is overall more youthfull looking. I don't mind the splurge if it keeps me looking great!!!
Amazing - so many things in one product!
Posted 10/4/2010 by Amber
This is by far my favorite product. It has vitamin C, E and other ingredients that are amazing for the skin. I bought the Obaji C 10% serum and then realized that this product has vitamin c in it, as well. Vitamin C is 'L-ascorbic acid'. I've been using this product for the past few months and absolutely love it. I can't use other SkinCeutical products(break out from it for some reason & I never break out), but this product is my addiction. :)
Posted 9/13/2010 by David
I have used this product for many years - it is the best on the market. IT SHOULD NOT BE SMELLY! It should be clear and have only a mild odor. It does age, and should be used within a year of opening. Even unopened, it will go bad, so if yours arrives and is not a clear liquid, send it back. The product does appear to work properly even after it turns smelly.
Posted 8/29/2010 by Lindance
I bought this from the Dr. and it DOES smell like bacon, but my skin is amazing. I'll be buying from SkincareRX from now on. My pores are tighter and complexion is much smoother. Love it!
Posted 7/25/2010 by Anonymous
I received a sample of 5ml from SkincareRX. So far this is one of the best serum I ever tried. Although the smell is not that pleasant, considering the component, vitamine c and e, I could accept the smell. After 1 week used only at night, I could tell my skin get brighter and smoother.
Posted 5/20/2010 by Anonymous
I'm 60 years old and have been using this product since 2005. Just recently started ordering from 'SkinCareRx', which is cheaper and super fast on shipping. At any rate, do not wait another day to order this product. You will love the feel and results...after a short time you will surely see the huge difference
So far so good~
Posted 4/19/2010 by Kim
It does have a funky smell...like hotdogs, but my skin looks brighter and smoother.
Amazing for sun protection
Posted 3/17/2010 by Jill
The antioxidants in this are absolutely awesome for sun protection. I have extremely sun sensitive skin (I burn in about 10 minutes in the sun) and I wore it as my serum every day on my trip to Peru underneath my daily SPF 15 moisturizer. My face didn't get burned at all at 12,000 feet above sea level being in the sun all day every day. If you put a good moisturizer and sunscreen over it, you don't notice the stickiness (just don't overdo the 4-5 drops).

Also the stuff that i got from the Doctor was clear in color and had no smell but the stuff that i bought from this website is yellow looking and has a really strong bacon smell , really nasty .
Posted 2/10/2010 by Heather
I got some of the same exact stuff from the Doctor and it had no smell what so ever . I bought some from this site and it smells horrible . It is the same stuff it's just that the stuff from this site smells horrible . What is going on ? Do they let it get old before they send it out . Trust me something is not right .

I tried a sample of the CEFerulic last night and woke up to smoother skin.The next day my skin looked smoother,I think I will buy this product.
Posted 2/21/2008 by Anonymous
I had been using the AOX+ 20 serum, but this is better. I did not find it sticky, but I only use 3 or 4 drops. The vitamin E makes it more moisturizing that now I dont need a moisturizer between this and my sunscreen. No clogs, no breakouts. Im using this for preventive measures, though if it fades some old acne spots I'll be thrilled!
can't beleive its working so fast
Posted 1/30/2008 by Meghan
well I got this because I knew i was at an age where my skin was starting to look a little weathered- (37) so I did a lot of research and bought this. Its has only been one week and people are already commenting that my skin looks smoother and more even toned. I love the way it feels, the way my make up goes on. its just great. worth the money. someone even told me i looked less tired. that made my day. i love this stuff. and everyone is right, DO not put too much on. just a very little is enough.
Posted 1/10/2008 by Laina
This is absolutely the best skincare line! I use the CE Ferulic follwed by the B5 Gel every morning. There is no stickiness if you use the correct amount. It doesn't take much. It absorbs beautifully and leaves my skin glowing all day. I have oily, sensitive skin, and this line has completely changed my complexion. The price is high, but worth every penny.
I love this skin line!!
Posted 1/4/2008 by Pamela
I absolutely love this product as well as the B5. It makes my skin look so youthful (I'm 39) and radiant. I am a life long sunworshipper and I can't believe the difference in my skin since starting these products about six months ago. No more hyperpigmentation, no more crows feet and my skin feels amazing. I highly recommend this line to anyone looking to age gracefully. I have searched my entire 30's for a product line that actually did what it said...and I found it.
TRIED & TRUE RESULTS
Posted 12/31/2007 by Carol
I'm one of those who has spent lots of $$ on SkinCare products since I was in my 20's now in my 40's and have been using Skinceuticals since 1999 when I was introduced to it at an upscale hair salon. Really, have tried to use other products to see if they work better since this one is expensive, but NEVER have found a substitute. I really do look younger than most women my age and I believe at least 30-40% of that could be attributed to this product. It definitely lessens wrinkles, firms the areas where my skin is losing elasticity around my jawline, and gives my skin a more even tone. I use it at night before going to bed faithfully. THANKS A MILLION, it's worth it!
